Description
The body is in the shape of two tube connected by a common wall and a flat base. The tube curves at the bottom. It has a small and flat base. The decoration consists of an applied pale green trail on the body.

Vessels such as this were believed to have been used to store and apply kohl-eye makeup. The fact that they consist of two tubes meant that they could have been used to store two different colours of makeup. The long tube meant that a spatula could have been inserted. - (BB.1617)
